Men’s Groups: Purpose, Power and Intimacy with John Wineland
Drawing on years of working with both men and women on sexual and spiritual intimacy, masculinity and finding one's purpose, John Wineland shares how he's trying to help men across the world. A renowned men’s group facilitator, teacher and thought leader, John encourages people to embrace a paradigm shift where masculinity celebrates femininity, presence and liberation.
Discover the power and purpose of men's groups (and where to find them), gatherings of men fueled by accountability and real friendships that transcend superficial bonds like sports and booze.
With empathy that is far too rare these days, John speaks directly to men who feel displaced, isolated and forgotten in this dynamic time of change in our world. John's message offers clarity and inspiration for men navigating challenging times.
He also discusses the secret to handling the grief of losing his daughter (the inspiration for Justin's film, Five Feet Apart) with grace and healing, made possible largely because of the support he found in his own men's group.
Whether you identify as a man, woman, trans or nonbinary, this conversation will probably make you want to learn with John, and will have you cheering for him to accomplish his ambitious goal of creating 10,000 men's groups around the world.
